About the Author

Theodor Geisel (a.k.a. Dr. Seuss) is, quite simply, the most-beloved children’s book author in the United States. Long considered a national treasure, he died at the age of 87 in 1991 at his home in La Jolla, California. Dr. Seuss wrote and illustrated 44 books.


From the Board edition.

From AudioFile

This production combines two of Seuss's most famous fables. OH, THE PLACES YOU'LL GO, once offered as a graduation speech, tracks life's transitions. John Lithgow follows the rhythms and rhymes that express the ups and downs of life. His performance has an air of authority that is comforting. He shifts tone to fit the shifting moods--offering jocularity when life seems devastating, compassion in the face of losses and confusion. Mark Levinson's score spurs listeners on to success. THE LORAX is an allegory of the Earth's ruin, told through wacky Seuss characters. The musical accompaniment goes from magically bright to dark and frightening. Ted Danson begins slowly, pausing to take in a glorious world of bounty. Pacing and volume increase as the ancient, wise Lorax recounts a story of destruction and the hope for undoing the ruin.

More About the Author

"A person's a person, no matter how small," Theodor Seuss Geisel, a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, would say. "Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained and delighted."

Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped millions of kids learn to read.

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts, on March 2, 1904. After graduating from Dartmouth College in 1925, he went to Oxford University, intending to acquire a doctorate in literature. At Oxford, Geisel met Helen Palmer, whom he wed in 1927. Upon his return to America later that year, Geisel published cartoons and humorous articles for Judge, the leading humor magazine in America at that time. His cartoons also appeared in major magazines such as Life, Vanity Fair, and Liberty. Geisel gained national exposure when he won an advertising contract for an insecticide called Flit. He coined the phrase, "Quick, Henry, the Flit!" which became a popular expression.

Geisel published his first children's book, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, in 1937, after 27 publishers rejected it.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984, an Academy Award, three Emmy Awards, three Grammy Awards, and three Caldecott Honors, Geisel wrote and illustrated 44 books. While Theodor Geisel died on September 24, 1991, Dr. Seuss lives on, inspiring generations of children of all ages to explore the joys of reading.

Format: Audio CD
Read aloud by comedian John Lithgow (perhaps best known for his performance in "Third Rock from the Sun"), Oh, the Places You'll Go! is an audiobook production of a brief yet wise and tongue-in-cheek humorous graduation speech, as created by the one and only classic children's author Dr. Seuss (1904-1991). In his characteristic metered rhyme, Seuss speaks of the Great Balancing Act and encourages those listening to develop their untapped potential. "And will you succeed? / Yes! You will, indeed! / (98 and 3/4 percent... guaranteed.)" Rounding out the audio CD is an unabridged production of "The Lorax", Dr. Seuss' classic warning against the ecological danger posed by mindless progress, as narrated by Ted Dansen. Packaged with a convenient gift card holder, Oh, the Places You'll Go! is a time-tested classic especially recommended as a graduation gift for young (and old!) people who have just completed any major educational achievement of note. 1 CD, approx. 30 minutes.

Oh, the Places you'll go!
The Lorax

This collection is small, but it is still quite a fine collection. My favorite Dr. Seuss story of all time, Oh, The Places You'll Go, is on this CD and no others. It's nice to see that such an effort was put into making this audio book and properly making up for the lack of animation that is just natural with sound. That lack is more than made up for with creative background sounds and narrators who, such as Ted Danson, read the popular tales with flare and animation in their voices. This is a fine collection to own for anyone who wants to hear the sounds of Dr. Seuss. I'm sure Dr. Seuss himself would be quite proud. Enjoy.
